The client wanted a wallpaper that showcased Dubai, its high-rise buildings and skyline but in a minimalistic manner which matched the colours of their décor. Picture POD team worked with the client to create the 10 meters X 2.7 meters wallpaper, on the Evergreen fabrics from Dickson Coatings with Jet Tex – Blanc texture.

Canvas Framing with Picture POD

goframe.png

In this Picture POD blog, we have a look at the magical GOframe 1500 PRO System. Magical because the framing system is designed to be the ultimate solution for quick, crisp, and hassle-free framing for all medium and large sized frames. This canvas framing process involves no additional tools, adhesives, measurements or people- it is easy to do on your own and it takes few minutes only.

Our Canvas Framing System with new improved positioning corners and bars makes framing a canvas in a stretched gallery wrap an easy 5-minute job. At Picture POD we always aim to create a perfectly printed canvas that is ready for display and we achieve that with our Canvas Framing System. The stretcher bars, corresponding to the dimensions of the finished frame, are made from the best grades of North American basswood which is ideal for museum quality frames due to its stability, low resin, and lignin content. The frame’s wood is treated by kiln drying to a moisture content of below 8% which eliminates warp or shrinkage at a later stage.

Before we learn how to frame our Canvas, it is important to know basics of wrapping.
Gallery Wrap is a method of stretching an artist’s canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar and is secured to the back of the wooden frame. Sides of the canvas that wrap around the frame carry the canvas’s image. This is also called an Image wrap.

Museum Wrap is different as the image is displayed only on the face of the frame only. The sides of the canvas that wrap around the frame are left white, or a colour from the image can be used as a border.
Mirror Wrap is different as the parts of the image closest to the edge simply get mirrored over the sides of the canvas as a mirrored image. This is a bit different from an image wrap, which simply continues the image over the side; a mirror border literally mirrors what is at the edge and extended it to the frame’s sides.
The Canvas Framing Systems at Picture POD work with all the wraps as the variations in wrap is a consideration at the time of actual printing. Picture POD’s Smart Editor gives you the option to have your canvas frame’s edges printed as an extension of the image or in a specific colour.

The Canvas Framing System comes with 4 positioning corners, trimmer, blade pack, U shaped fasteners and frame bars. You can order frames in a range of sizes and mix and match the sizes to create interesting collages. The width of frame in the GOframe 1500 Standard Range is 0.95 cms thick and width of frame in the 1500 PRO Range is 2.22 cms thick, both are 3.81 cms high. Picture POD has; 40cms X 40cms, 40cms X 60 cms, 60 cms X 60 cms and 100 cms X 100 cms sizes available for order.

It is very important that your plans for DIY canvas framing do not get doused in dripping glue or messy adhesives, which is why the framing bars of our Canvas Framing System come with a high-quality adhesive tape which eliminates glue mess or accidental adhesion.

The most frustrating part of framing is often the alignment, a slight miscalculation or misplacement can lead to a wrong cut or a lopsided framing. Picture POD’s Canvas Framing System completely eliminates the need to manually align the frame by using corner clamps that ensure perfectly alighted stretcher frames. These corner clamps don’t just ensure perfect 90-degree angles but they also distance the canvas from the bars so that the adhesive tape does not touch the base. You can be sure that the canvas is in the center of the frame by simply lining up the edges of the frame bars.

The stretching bars fit on the corner clamps to create the flat shape of the final frame, without any hammers, scales, staplers or nails. Once the frame is assembled simply place it over the image, use the guidelines of the canvas to trim the excess canvas off, if required. Once the canvas is trimmed exactly in size we lay it over the inverted image, so that the edges of the yellow corners are flushed with the edges of the canvas.
Gently push the bars downwards so that the adhesive makes contact with the image. This adhesive would be sufficient to ensure that the canvas stays intact and it is advisable to not touch the adhesive or lay it on the canvas until this step.

With all 4 bars now adhered, simply trim the corners of the canvas as that area will not be required in framing. It is easy to cut these triangular areas, as the corner clamps provide us with easy guidelines. Next we run our blade throught the slit in the corner clamp, this splits the canvas for folding on the adjacent bars.

After the cut, simply remove the corner clamp and fold the cut canvas corners to the bar’s adhesive on all four corners.

The frame is formed by bringing two adjacent sides together and firmly inserting the U shaped fastener in the grooves provided, you may use a small hammer to secure its position. Repeating the same for all side we see the upright frame and we can remove the adhesive layer from all four sides. To ensure that the adhesive sticks to all side properly, press the excess canvas down on the stretched bars, follow the first side with the opposite side and then the remaining sides.

We can often frame an image or canvas but its surface is not tense and after some time it feels rather droopy but Picture POD’s Canvas Framing System solves this problem by providing tensioners. These tensioner are small bars that fit snugly into place to allow for more tension that produces a drum like feel to the canvas. For a larger canvas, it is advisable to use a central bar for additional support.
So say good bye to nails, glues, scales, and accidents to experience the simple elegance of framing with Picture POD’s simple and effective Canvas Framing System.

CANVAS PRINTING – A WALK-THROUGH HISTORY

Canvas has become the ‘media of choice’ for most artists today. What has changed is the way we put paint and ink onto the canvas.

With modern technology we can now use ‘INK JET’ printers to produce incredible pieces of art. Purists may say that this is not true art, that you can’t express feelings through a ‘print’.

Years ago artist would have used layers of linen and lead white paint polished to produce a surface to paint on. But cotton canvas is a more versatile medium, it can stretch better than linen and because of its structure will last for hundreds of yeaers.

But because of the uneven surface, artists like the texture and feel of canvas, and its possible to still use that texture but apply the ink using a machine instead of using hands and a brush.

An artist can express his feelings and thoughts by painting onto canvas. And his work will last thousands of years to leave an indellible mark on history. It will give years of pleasure and intrigue to whoever views his work. It can be imortalised by hanging in a famous gallery, like ‘THE TATE’ or hang in a families home.

But you can still fulfill that inbred desire to express yourself and record it for history by using photography. Just look at the famous photographers around the world and how thier images are displayed in magazines newspapers – and galleries.

Also the fact that you can reproduce an image, thousands of people, possibly millions will be able to enjoy that picture in they’re own homes. Its possible to have a Rembrandt, Turner or Canaletto on your own wall.

We cant all afford an ‘old master’ on our living room walls but we can have our own piece of history by having a canvas print of that image whether it be of the Mona Lisa or your childs hand painting, it will bring pleasure to the view and bring lasting memories.

Latest Invention – A Revolutionary Pen with Your choosen Color

Digital stylus scribble pen copy

The front entryway on our 100-year-old house is painted an incredible shade of red, yet there’s a major chip out of it. I’ve been needing to touch up the spot, yet how to get the right paint shading? A photograph would be off track, and I’m somewhat reluctant to rub off another, greater chip to take to the paint store.

Before long, I – and all who have shading issues – may have an answer. It’s known as the Scribble and it’s another sort of pen that can test any shading you point it at and afterward let you attract that shading. There are two sorts of Scribbles arranged: one with an ink cartridge that will give you a chance to draw on paper with your caught shading, and a stylus form that will give you a chance to sprinkle shading around on your cell phone’s screen when the Scribble+ application is introduced.

Both forms will utilize Bluetooth innovation or Micro-USB links to speak with your PC and different gadgets, and will quantify around 6.3 creeps in length. A Scribble pen utilizes 16-bit shading sensors to test the world and can amass to 100,000 distinctive hues.

The form that draws on paper has an inherent ink cartridge that will squirt the right blend of hues into a blending chamber before it goes on to the page. The pens themselves will likewise be accessible in an assortment of body hues, natch.

The innovators of the gadget, Mark Barker and Robert Hoffman, will soon be dispatching a Kickstarter battle to finance their gadget. Early sponsor will get 20 percent off the arranged cost of $149.95 (generally £89, AU$160) for the ink variant and $79.95 (generally £48, AU$85) for the stylus. Intrigued people can join on the Scribble site to be informed of the battle kickoff by email.

I’d think craftsmen would love a doohickey like this. How cool would it be to paint a blossom with a pen that takes the accurate hues from nature and puts them down on a bit of paper? For another utilization, in a public statement about the pens, an inside decorator from Boston referred to strangely as “Emily G.” says: “This would be the ideal gadget to help me effectively sweep and spare shading tests for customer presentations. Having the capacity to rapidly coordinate existing hues off dividers and swatches with the Scribble Pen will be splendid.”

All in all, you should? What might you utilize this force pen for? Tell me in the remarks underneath.

Do you say YES or NO Wallpaper

Picturepod.me - YES or NO Wallpaper

Wallpaper is one of those sensitive subjects in inside configuration – it is possible that you cherish it or scorn it. We would all be able to review a dated or ugly establishment that has made us dread it forever. Possibly it’s been the issue of the dull flower and paisley at the “enchanting ” quaint little inn, or perhaps your Aunt Fathima run damask dark on gold number in her lounge area that looked more like the getting parlor of a menial bordello. Startling? Yes!

Then again, wallpaper or the mechanically precise divider covers have enhanced the dividers of the most excellent and chic rooms the world over. Selecting a proper divider covering includes an idea of shading, scale, example, composition and the kind of room and wellspring of light.

Wallpaper has been around the length of history itself. Since 200 BC, China had been using rice paper stuck to the dividers of their homes. With the approach of papermaking around 100 AD, wallpaper was conceived. This idea spread all through the world. Arabians substituted paper strands for bamboos, reeds and woods in with the general mish-mash. By the twelfth Century, wallpaper had advanced toward Europe, and to the Americas by the 1730s. So far, wallpapers were printed by hand, and accordingly saved for uncommon undertakings.

In the late eighteenth Century, the French designed a wallpaper making machine, and in this way making the products feasible for bigger rooms. Louis XVI issued a pronouncement putting forward the length of a wallpaper move to 34 feet, a standard that is about the same today. Amid the twentieth Century in the U.S., the further improvement of mechanics made it wallpaper accessible to the masses.

Wallpaper has been in and out of style, as finicky as hemlines, consistently. Today, divider covers are without a doubt affected by design and workmanship. Accessible in a heap of materials running from high quality workmanship paper, sand, plug, mica chip, strings and even shells, today’s divider covers don’t disillusion.

Can’t locate the ideal divider covering? Why not outline your own? Organizations, for example, Spoonflower, Design Your Own Walls and Printed Wallpaper Company can help you make your ideal configuration. Motivations can originate from a lovely photo, or view from a get-away, to an accurate match of your bed materials or drapery. Your innovativeness is your lone breaking point.

For those that are more gallant and trial, divider covering can be made from antique books prints, old maps, photocopies of most loved pictures, blessing wrapping paper and pages out of magazines all amassed in an example or collection style.

Any surface can be wallpapered, dividers, roofs, staircase risers. Be that as it may, be sensible with how much wallpaper you introduce. Not each surface should be secured. Generally your home will be that unnerving spot everybody is reluctant to visit. Your visitor will likely be excessively kind, making it impossible to let you know generally, however believe me on this one.

Not that I am against DIY activities or weekend warriors, however a flawless establishment can either represent the moment of truth a divider covering. Spend a minimal expenditure on an expert installer, your home will love you for it, and you will love your home.
